Hi there, My name is Naiya, my mum is called Sarah and this is a snippet of our story. In 1999 my mum began a road trip that unknown to her would completely change her life. The journey started in a trailer park in West Virginia where she found a 1972 Winnebago covered in canvas and abandoned by it's owners for many years. the plan was to drive all the way down through Mexico to Belize and Costa Rica and on to South America. The adventure started well and she saw no reason not to complete her journey from beginning to end, the Winnebago had other plans. A few days before Christmas with a puff and a splutter the engine died and she rolled into a beautiful little beach village called Mazunte on the west coast of Oaxaca. It took a month to find and fix the problem and during this time she fell in love with Mexico and Mazunte and a whole new life as she saw it could be. That month changed her world and started mine, her first decision was to have a baby, she was the happiest, healthiest and most relaxed she had ever been in life and just knew this was the place to do it. It happened immediately and she spent 7 beautiful months on the beach with me growing inside her, it was incredible but having decided to give birth to me in her home town in the UK and fearing that she would never return she gathered every last penny she had and bought a chunk of land on a hill over looking the village and the beautiful ocean, it was a crazy decision but this way she would have to come back. She left for the UK with a heavy heart and a big round tummy a week later. My mum and I managed to return many times as I grew bigger and stronger, doing little bits of work on the land each time, first a bodega where we could store tools and live while we would be building then foundations and on one occasion we gathered a team of helpers and 2 Italian carpenters and managed to construct the roof. It was so frustrating for her not having the money to pay builders and architects to create our dream but working and saving money, now in the States, gave her time to understand the land and people and really appreciate every inch and moment we would spend there. Between running a business and being a mum she spent hours and hours every day and night on-line and in libraries learning everything she could about building on a budget and gathering ideas and pictures from wherever she could, a plan was formed. She sold up and packed up we and moved to Mexico permanently when I was only 3. That was it, she wanted to build our new lives for us away from the craziness of the western world and she was going to do it! Having plenty of ideas by now and hundreds of sketches but very little money we arrived with tools and a few books from Amazon on natural building. We lived in the dirt for 3 long years as the house slowly grew around us (we have so many stories). Our trusty worker Roman (now the gardener), myself and my courageous mum did almost all the work together, it must have been a long and difficult journey for her and I know she was lonely at times but we achieved the impossible dream and created this our beautiful home where we lived so very happily for 7 more years. We now live in the UK, we came back just for school really and we'll stay until I finish all my studies, raising money by renting our home to you to keep it maintained and help towards my future University fees, it's been tough on my Mum leaving our dream but it's for all the right reasons and I love her for doing it for me. As for the Winnebago, she sold her to a circus in Pochutla to buy wood to build our roof with. We watched her disappear into the sunset, driven by the ringmaster, with a lion in a cage towing behind her ... me waving madly, perched as always on the side of Mum's hip, Mum smiling with tears rolling down her face (true story). Our motto: A little courage can take you anywhere.
